Everton FC will have to overcome significant hurdles if they are to realise their dream of a new stadium in Walton Hall Park, a Freedom of Information request by the ECHO revealed.
The Walton Hall Park plan has been rumoured for several years but was finally made public yesterday because of Liverpool City Council’s need to highlight what it plans to do with that land in the future.
With fans openly discussing the move away from Goodison to Walton Hall Park as long as three years ago, an FOI by the ECHO showed the council was looking at the feasibility of the move.
The document pointed out some of the potential hurdles that would have to be overcome, especially due to the need for other development around the stadium to help finance it.
